Our Mission and Vision
Mission (Our Purpose)
Our purpose is to glorify God.
We do this in three ways:
- Sharing new life in Jesus
- Making disciples
- Equipping disciples for ministry.
We work toward this goal in four ways:
- Relationship with God
Foundations (Our Core Values)
- We worship the Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength.
- In following our Savior and guided by the Holy Spirit, we are committed to teaching and living by the Word of God.
- We envision a community in which people love and help one another, working for unity, friendship, hospitality, and fun.
- We share the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ through words and works, locally and globally.
